Toms River NJ, Congressman Tom MacArthur introduced two bills and is working on another to help local schools, students, and law enforcement officials address community and school safety concerns. The bipartisan Mental Health and Public Safety Partnership Act establishes a national pilot program to place on-site social workers in qualified police departments around the country, mirroring the work being done in South Jersey. The Modern School Threat Reporting Act creates new grants for states to create a mobile application (app) that allows students and teachers to report threats to local law enforcement. This bill mirrors the state law in Florida championed by school safety advocate, Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in Parkland. Mr. Pollack, founder of Americans for Children’s Lives and School Safety, has endorsed both pieces of legislation and is collaborating with MacArthur on the third.

Bramnick bill forcing telemarketers to identify themselves continues to advance

Trenton NJ, A bill sponsored by Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick requiring telemarketers to provide the contact information of their employer within seconds of a call is another step closer to becoming law following Assembly approval today.

Jon Bramnick

“People are bombarded every day by annoying telemarketing calls,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “When a person sits down to dinner or is relaxing after a hard day’s work the last thing they want is to be interrupted by an anonymous call for a product they have no interest in.”

Bramnick’s bill (A1954) requires a telemarketer to provide customers with the name, mailing address, and telephone number of their employer within 30 seconds of making the call. The bill aligns state law with federal law. Violators can be penalized. The Federal Trade Commission collected $120 million in fines last year.

“People on the federal Do Not Call list deserve to know who exactly is calling them so they can report any violations,” concluded Bramnick. “Telemarketers need to know there will be consequences for ignoring the law.”

There were 4.1 billion robocalls, including telemarketing calls, received in May alone nationwide, up from 3.3 billion in April. That’s more than 1,500 robocalls every second of every minute of every day, seven days a week, according to the YouMail Robocall Index, which estimates monthly robocalls in the U.S.
